A Reflection on the Decade and A Look Towards the Future

         As someone who was born in 2000, as of 2020 I will have lived exactly two decades. Over the last decade I have grown up, changed, and become the person I am today. From graduating middle school and high school, to being accepted into Skidmore College, to finishing just about two years of college. Beyond school I have started driving, had my first and many other jobs or internships, and developed as a person. 

Since 2010, a lot has happened in my life and I am proud of the person that I have become. Friends have come and go, I’ve made several mistakes, and have found myself to be the happy and confident person I am today. Even a little over a year ago when I first started college, I wouldn’t have predicted that I would be who I am now. I would encourage everyone reading this article to reflect on how their own lives have changed in the last decade. 

As I look forward towards 2020 and the decade to come, I hope to continue to see my life change in positive ways or even negative ones that contribute to who I am as a person. I hope that the world changes in positive ways as well and that climate change becomes less of a pressing concern. Honestly, I do not know what is in store for me in the coming decade and for that matter I do not want to know. I could be married by 2030, a lot could happen in this next decade and I am as interested as you are to see how everything plays out. 

Life is unpredictable and that is part of the beauty of experiencing it!
